Eckman was selected as Construction Manager for the Mason Library Program Expansion at Keene State College, in partnership with Perry Dean Rogers Architects. The addition to the occupied building located along Appian Way, a main pedestrian walkway through campus, increased the Library’s capacity, particularly for the Cohen Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, and create a greater synergy between college programs.
The new Cohen Center features gallery exhibition space, an auditorium, classroom space and faculty support space. The unique brick venire on the exterior of the building is dramatic and conveys the seriousness of the department’s purpose.
This was Eckman’s third project for Keene State College.
